| LSU AgCenter Forestry
Forests covers about 50% of Louisiana's land area, making it the state's most common land use.
Fifty-nine of the state's 64 parishes contain land capable of producing sufficient timber to support the state’s extensive forest products industry activities, provide habitat for wildlife, recreational opportunity, and other environmental benefits.
The harvest of timber, historically Louisiana's top agricultural crop, has returned to pre-recession levels. The state harvested over 990 million board feet of sawtimber and 6.3 million cords of timber in 2013.
